How It Works
For students aged 13+ signing onto our 12-week Duke of Edinburgh course, you’ll work independently from home or school and as your Tutor, we’ll be supervising and aiding your learning.
You’ll need to spend a minimum of 1 hour per week (preferably more) over 12 weeks for a Bronze or Silver Skill.
Whilst you’ll be working remotely or using our Virtual Network online, we’ll be monitoring your progress with advice and feedback weekly at an agreed time.
Each week we’ll set an individual Lesson Plan, and also provide a monthly tutor report with lots of feedback to turn you into a Touch Typist along with gaining your DofE Skill.
Learners will be given weekly work programmes. Those on Option 1 will need to email over their Progress Reports each week. For those on Option 2, we'll spend an hour a week together online where learning will be done on our Virtual Network so we can keep a close eye that the correct learning is being made. Advice, targeted help and encouragement will always be available.
After your twelfth session, there will be a test which we expect to be passed to a minimum standard. The Assessor Report will then be filed with Duke of Edinburgh.
